Royal Caribbean is heading west for the first time in a decade. Starting in June 2022, the Navigator of the Seas will have its home port in Los Angeles and offer three- to seven-night cruises until at least spring 2023.
This is good news, said Vicki Freed, Royal Caribbean’s vice president of sales, sales support and service. Travel consultants ask me all the time: When do you take the boat to the West Coast? Now I can answer this question: We return to the west coast. And the Navigator will impress our guests from Los Angeles.
Navigator of the Seas was delivered in 2002 and received a $115 million bow upgrade in February 2019. The ship’s upgrades offer new features, including a significantly expanded resort-style pool deck, new slides, dining area, entertainment and more.

The Navigator will offer three, four and five night itineraries to Catalina Island, California and Ensenada and Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. In addition, seven nights are offered in Cabo during the winter holidays, with stopovers in Puerto Vallarta and Mazatlán.
California has called us home, and what better way to celebrate than to bring our next generation of cruises to the City of Angels and make it a year-round adventure just in time for summer, said Michael Bayley, president and CEO of Royal Caribbean International.
We look forward to returning to Los Angeles to add more daring vacation options along the West Coast. With a ship like the Navigator of the Seas equipped with waterslides, day and night activities and numerous restaurants, bars and lounges, friends and families are in for a treat, Bailey said.
